Standard spec but good quality low loader
Budget approx £7-10k

Preferences:
Sprung drawbar
Sprung ramps (or hyd!)
Hardwood floor
Better tyres than twin lorry wheels
Commercial axles with LS brakes?

Yes I know I'm being rather optimistic...!

You had a windfall thought on your other thread that was too much?

No windfall. Looked at a single axle for £3k, but decided it wasn't stable.

Looked at @AgriLinc mini for £5850 and that's near capacity as they say, as well as only being steel floor, no sprung drawbar etc. Their 13t version with sprung drawbar works out at £7600, so on that basis I might as well look a little wider afield as well.

Trying to keep the cost down as much as possible, but safety comes into it a bit. I'd rather buy something decent now than regret it later.

An ex-demo or ex-stock with a wodge of discount would be ideal really. :rolleyes::whistle:

Definitely plus if its overspecced (weight and size) it's future proof.

Thanks. I've priced a 13t version up on their website similar to above at £7600.

Herbst seem very competitive, but wondering whether to go better quality. Some on here don't seem to rate them.
our has been no trouble apart from 3 sets brakes ,new lights,new floor ,new mudguards and a respray to be fair it is 14 years old done a hell of a lot of work and would recommend them ,the floor boards are crap though

GROWTH HABIT

• Quick early development with erect growth habit
• Fast to reach GS30
• Later maturing, allowing more time to build yield SY INSITOR is a taller variety (with no PGR). However, it responds well to PGR applications to reduce height and lodging risk.

DID YOU KNOW?

SY INSITOR produces large numbers of erect tillers. It has good tiller survival over winter and can carry these through the season to deliver outstanding yields. Its early development and speed to GS30 means nitrogen timing is key to feed the rapid early growth.

DISEASE
